Quite confusing, this volume deals with Laura's quest to find out why Luci died and who was responsible. She encounters the gods in various guises, some of whom seem to be helping her.
The Norns return and certain rivalries between the gods intensify. Trying not to give too much away, this series is quite captivating, even if, half the time, I do not really know what is going on. The volume ends on a cliffhanger so there's evidently more to come.
